Taxation is theft, son.

75% tax is absolutely absurd – how can you tax someone working 12-16 hour days this much? What would be the point in working, so you can potentially earn less overall than those working in lower skilled jobs? You sound totally naive and deluded. I am all for paying teachers more but to be frank teachers do not work on as complex work or as many hours as top bankers and lawyers in the City.

(i) Legal Aid for refugees is not a priority in the current economic climate. (ii) Sweden is a backwards PC country and ASAP has no business saying he’s ‘grateful’ to them for correcting their crime.
